Last month I set myself five simple goals for 2013. Smart, sensible goals that I knew I could easily achieve.
One of them and probably the most important of them all was to capture one photo of my family, six people standing together, looking at the camera once a month for twelve months. It sounds simple, right? If only it was.
So tonight I bring you the first instalment of many. I can just tell this is going to be a whole lot of fun.
It had been raining for days. I was in my last days and of pregnancy and the end of the month was fast approaching I didn’t think this shot was going to happen. A large portion of Queensland was flooding including areas around us. We threw the kids in the car and set off to find a nice spot for a family photo each time being met with flooded creeks, messy paddocks and life stock. After almost giving up we pulled up in a paddock on the way home. It was muddy, it was extremely windy and the kids were not willing to co-operate. I set the tripod up, handed the remote for the camera to Josceline and hoped for the best. It’s not the perfect family photo but it just makes me love it even more.
We were on our last weekend escape in Queensland having packed up the house the day before. We were on our way to dinner at the rum bar in Airlie Beach it was truly amazing. Riding up to room we barely fit in the roof. Luigi and Violet played games while the big kids enjoyed a treat from cold rock.
